First Estonian-built 3D printer hits market ({{commentsTotal}})

EDM Machinery, a company which grew out of the University of Tartu, has launched the first 3D printer designed and built in Estonia.

The idea to produce 3D printers came to the company after staff became tired of repairing a 3D printer they had purchased.

“We now are aiming to produce a larger quantity of printers and visit different expos, from where we will find interested parties and new ideas,” CEO Kersti Vatter said, adding that they plan to continue improving the design and help the sector grow in the world.

The 2,500-euro 3D printer is aimed at more research and innovation intensive businesses. The printer comes with a 2-year guarantee.
